We have the pleasure to present this All-African Top 20 of current hits compiled by Bolaji Alonge and mixed by DJ Ray Bee Browne for your listening pleasure on Mixcloud and a comprehensive list of YouTube links to the songs.
Stemming from the great reception of our (still hot) previous playlist Lockdown Naija Top 20, a collection of top Afrobeats from around the continent became a necessity. We hereby provide a cursory overview and introduce the freshest sounds of contemporary Africa to music lovers worldwide.

Stonebwoy‘s collaboration with Keri Hilson also remains outstanding.
